Secrets of the Skinny

Doctor OzI’ve been very impressed with The Doctor Oz Show. I like his common sense approach to getting healthy and staying healthy. This morning’s show was no exception. Three women were guests on his show. They each lost over 100 pounds and kept it off. They found the “Secrets of the Skinny” that worked for them. And they’re willing to share those secrets with Doctor Oz and his audience. Here are the secrets . . .

Cravings Killers

  • Brown rice tortilla, lightly toasted (baked) with salsa or parmesan

Metabolism Boosters

  • Cayenne pepper, sprinkle on food or supplements
  • Vitamin B Complex
  • Cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon a day.

Must Have Meals

Weight Loss Secret Weapons

  • Learn to grade food.

          A = Fresh green beans out of the garden
          B = Frozen beans changed a little
          C = Canned green beans cooked – A little altered
          D = Processed
          F = Grandma’s green bean casserole

  • Use cans of food as weights. Lift weights while watching TV
  • Work out with a weighted vest. The more weight you have on your body, the more calories you burn.

The women had words of wisdom for the audience:

  • Becky’s advice: “I changed the way I looked at food. Food became nutrition.”
  • Cari’s advice: “Start slow and stick with it. Make plans and hold yourself accountable. Definitely have support … Have supportive people around you.”
  • When Doctor Oz asked what kept her motivated, Caroline answered, “There’s no such thing as the impossible.”
